আজি চাওঁক- Govt Asks Colleges to Increase Undergraduate Seats by 25%
The Assam government has asked all colleges of the state to increase their undergraduate seats by 25 percent this year. The entire 25 percent seats will be reserved for students from Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC) only.
“Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, higher secondary exams conducted by CBSE could not be completed entirely. As such, the marks given by the board are ‘projected marks’ in many cases. On the other hand, AHSEC managed to complete all the examinations and their marks are ‘actual’,” stated Himanta Biswa Sarma, the health, finance and education minister of Assam.
Reportedly, the marks secured by CBSE students are more than that scored by the ASHEC students, making it easier for the CBSE students to take admissions.
“Considering that the many students of the state council are not being able to take admission, we have asked the colleges to increase their seat capacity by 25 percent only for this year. All these seats will be reserved for state council students only,” said Himanta Biswa Sarma in a press conference on 18th August.
